Jake Odorizzi threw five scoreless innings and allowed five hits and two walks with a career-high 11 strikeouts over five innings against the Indians on Friday.
Despite posting his most dominant performance of his young career of Friday night, Odorizzi did not factor into the decision for the third time over his last four starts. He is now 1-3 with a 5.79 ERA and 1.74 WHIP which is not impressive, but if he can rack up the strikeouts similar to his previous performance, he will start to gain the trust of prospective fantasy owners. The Rays youngster will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Mariners on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Wade Davis will take over as the Royals' closer with Greg Holland on the 15-day disabled list.
Davis is instantly vaulted into top-5 closer status while he is closing, and has just as much value as Holland would have in the ninth inning. Davis is downright dominant, and could have the job for quite a while, as although the severity of Greg Holland's pectoral strain is unknown, Holland is expected to be out for a significant chunk of time. Davis should obviously now be owned in all leagues, and the biggest question about the job for now is whether Davis will hold onto the gig once Holland returns. Analysis: Ben Diamond
